Hummer Tactical Mtn. Bike

The perfect accessory for your Hummer.

Like the H2, the HUMMER Mountain Bike takes its origins from the U.S. Military. Its patented folding system was developed to allow Paratroopers an easy exit from military aircraft with a full size mountain bike.

I wonder what kind of, uh, accessories can you mount one of those things?

For 699 to a couple of grand, it should at least have machine gun mounts.. When I was a kid, my bike did... along with a motor powered by clothespins and playing cards..

I always wanted to rig up missle launchers, using bottle rockets and the electronic firing mechanism from those Estes model rocket (wow, their website sucks) launchers. Never got around to it though :-(

I would think you'd have an easier exit from the aircraft if you weren't riding the bike when you jumped....

Primarily, the excitement for the movie that inspired the idea has waned, lack of time and lack of disposable income.
